"The Portal" was my eleventh release, in April of 1997 on cassette. After I had released "Orange Mist Sunrise/Sunset" I took a nine month break recording solo pieces. During that time I recorded some pieces that went to a release by Vraxoin titled "Collaboration", the "Sonic Debris" release by Ambient Meat and few other things here and there. I got back to recording some solo pieces in December of 1996 and within two and a half months I had enough for a release.
So "The Portal" was born, an entrance to more of my music.
My equipment at this time: ARP 2600, ARP Odyssey, ARP Sequencer, modified Casio
keyboard, Digitech 7.6 Delay, several effects "stomp" boxes, some home made

Click on SEE ALL FILES in the bottom, right section for the CD and/or cassette artwork, also for the zip files I created from the original wav files. This includes flac.zip, mp3.zip, ogg.zip and wav.zip. The encoding for these files was set as high as possible the file type (except for the .wav file type).
